- From the 1960s onwards, international economics and international business have beendeveloping as separate fields. More recently, four trends that may lead to a possibleconvergence of international economics (IE) and international business (IB) have becomeevident. First, the modern IE literature has a strong microeconomic focus and it naturally leads to questions about the strategy and organisation of the multinational firm. Second, the firm orientation coincides with a revived interest in empirical research that is at the core of IB. Third, both in IB and IE there is growing interest in the implications of location and distance (economic geography). Fourth, the interest of IB scholars to include culture and institutions in the description of distance coincides with the trend in IE to place a stronger focus on values, norms and beliefs.The purpose of this workshop is to further contribute to the emerging and converging trends in IE and IB by attracting original contributions on these and related issues. All contributions with applied/policy aspects are welcome. Theoretical as well as empirical contributions aimed at delivering policy-relevant results are also solicited.[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
